Looks like the 2010 Moto will be available with a Hammerschmidt. Anyone have more info? Price? That looks like an ideal AM ride, when things turn downhill.

Singletrackworld.com had this to say on the new Moto:
"The Moto, frame wise, is unchanged apart from one very important feature. It has a new shorter shock link which drops the bottom bracket by 1 cm and reduces the head angle to 67°. The great news is that this new link will be retrofittable on last years models and is highly recommended to make the bike more suitable for its intended purpose.
Available in Moto Carbon 1, Moto Carbon 2, Moto 3 (featuring a HammerSchmidt as standard), Moto 4."

is there any chance that the suspension action will be compromised by the small ring size of the hammer? i.e. i know some susp designs, especially single pivot, are designed to work best in one ring, generally the middle ring. does this specialization apply to the moto and rize designs as well? or do the swing links allow the suspension designers to maximize efficiency in more than just one ring?

hopefully that made sense...
